Sycamore Student Will Be Speaking At The Mini Heart Marathon

A Sycamore High School Senior battling a life-threatening disease will be the face of one of this year's Heart Mini Marathon races. 

Senior David Moskowitz along with his family and lacrosse coach, Mr. Cole will speak before the 1K Steps for Strokes. David has Osler-Weber-Rendu disease which resulted from an aneurysm he had. There is currently no cure for this disease but that is not stopping David from showing his ongoing support for the cause with a goal for his team of raising $3,000.  

The American Heart Association, along with UC Health, under the leadership of Dr. Brett Kissella, sponsors the Heart Mini Marathon. This extraordinary event is Cincinnati’s largest single-day fundraiser and hometown favorite of 40+ years! Each year close to 30,000 registrants come together to participate in a heart-healthy exercise and raise life-saving funds to fight the #1 and #5 killers, heart disease and stroke.
